    Detective Comics #6 (DC, 1937) CGC GD 2.0 Brittle pages. Hailing from the dawn of DC, here's only the sixth issue of the series that later gave the company its name. This being the pre-superhero era, the series lived up to its title, with sleuths like Gumshoe Gus plying their trade. The cover is by Creig Flessel and showcases the series' early headliner, Speed Saunders. That character's story in the book was also drawn by Flessel. The other prominent creators involved were writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster; the future Superman creators produced both the Slam Bradley tale here and the story featuring the Spy. Overstreet 2005 GD 2.0 value = $688. CGC census 4/05: 1 in 2.0, 4 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
